You can't come to this area and not explore this park. Every season has something different to offer. The views are amazing. Ross castle is a nice place to visit. (ESP in the evening for photographers - great pics await) the lakes are amazing. Perfect place to walk, run or bike. I highly recommending hiring a jarvey to take you... More

We took a jaunting cart from Killarney and it was the best way to see a large portion of the park. So many things to see in the park. Def worth a few hours to explore the beautiful and we'll maintained park.

I enjoyed a lovely morning walking to the castle and enjoying the many little nooks and crannies of the beautiful grounds. Lovely tea and scone in the courtyard before taking the shuttle back. It's a beautiful park, not to be missed.
